Q

What was clothing like in the Ottoman Empire?

I'm writing a story; basing an ethnic group in my story to ancient Turks. I'm having difficulty imagining what they would wear in those times.

Hello,

I have found a few sites that might be helpful. 

There was an exhibition called "Style & Status: Imperial Costumes From Ottoman Turkey," at the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery in Washington in 2006. Here is the link to the exhibition, and another link to the Ottomans.org resource, specifically costume, they provide under "Learn More About the Ottoman Empire".

Another interesting site is a public domain World Costume site. Here is the link for the Ottoman era.

Let me know if you need more information.

Thank you for using AskOPL!
